Bravo and hats off to you, Jeffery!  If critical thinking skills can be built into the community college program training paramedics in Bossier Parish, North Louisiana, never let it be said such training is ethereal, too difficult, or relevant only to the ivory tower.

I am developing a module on critical thinking for my paramedic program.  Besides using Dr. Croskerry's articles and information from the Foundation for Critical Thinking, I am also using the textbook Patient Safety in Emergency Medicine by Croskerry and Emergency Medicine Decision Making by Weingart as references.  In addition I have been following the work of Dr. Kevin deLaplante of the Critical Thinker Academy.
